The importance of wildlife hazard management at airports

All airports need a comprehensive Wildlife Hazard Management plan to ensure that airside operations run smoothly and that wildlife ecosystems remain intact. 

Airports Council International and the global aviation industry have long recognized that it takes a specific skill set to successfully implement a Wildlife Hazard Management plan. 

Solutions to airports’ animal challenges are always evolving but some current preventative measures include managing overgrowth, fencing the runway effectively and making use of canines to chase birds away.
